This school does nothing about bullying, when my daughter complains about been bullied the teacher said she must go down something to the bully... I eventually took my child out and send her to another school...

This school needs leadership in academics. It seems some teachers are not helping students or assisting parents with improving grades. Trying to contact certain teachers is impossible.

This school has a very disorganized administration that does not support its teachers. There's a lack of disciolary action, lack of enforcement to keep education first, lack of focus on the students well rounded educational needs. The teachers work hard and have nothing to show for it. They also have some teachers who are unqualified. The students are disrespectful passed the lower school and have no direction.
